Hi  all,

I just got a rejection at istockphoto:

"The footage has been rendered as a 1280 x 720 Motion JPEG. However, it is important for you to know that 720 HD is a Progressive Only format.

Please de-interlace and re-render as a 720p file, then compress as a Photo JPEG before resubmitting for inspection."

Here is my pipeline:

1) image sequence in *.tga from Maya
2) ffmpeg for copressing into *.mov on linux (it works for all other agencies but IS):

ffmpeg -r 30 -i sequence.%d.tga -vcodec mjpeg -qmax 1 -qmin 1

I would be happy if some one could help me on it.

thank you in advance

P.S. but what is interesting that's IS has accepted some of my videos from the same batch.

I had that rejection once.  They might be correct but now I've rejected them for an unsustainable 15% commission and don't bother uploading to them any more.  Pond5 and SS sell lots of video clips without the upload problems I had with istock and with a higher commission percentage that I can stomach.

Hi sharpshot,

Thank you for your reply.
To be honest I don't like a 15% commission on IS.
But how it's possible that they accepted some of my video(which was compressed the same way the others). From what I found on ffmpeg documentation it should be progressive (non-interlaced) by default.

I wouldn't care much about IS rejections. I once had a rejection, where the inspector criticized something in the animation which wasn't there. I had some Sun animations with flares and some without and he even criticized the flares in the clips without them. In this case I complained and got right, but usually I don't reup to IS, it's not worth the time, if other agencies accepted the clip.
Maybe in your case the inspector just used a wrong player.

I upload my animations always as .mov photoJPG and never had problems.
